SC animal rescue wants to know who left 23 puppies on the side of the road

WEST COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - A Midlands animal rescue wants to know who left 23 puppies for dead along a Pelion roadway in 90-degree heat earlier this week and where the mother dogs are.

Pets Inc. says a good Samaritan rescued the 23 puppies in a ditch on Water Tower Road on June 4 and the mother dogs were nowhere in sight. The three to four-week-old puppies have been vetted and are being fostered, but are still in need of supplies and monetary donations.

"God gave us these animals to enjoy. Not to neglect and abuse and throw away," animal advocate Joyce Allen said. "They are not dispensable. They are living, breathing creatures."

Still needed:

  • Esbilac food replacement
  • Canned wet puppy food
  • Dry puppy food
  • Puppy potty pads
  • Donations for vetting, shots, etc

How you can help:

Pets Inc. is still in search of the mama dogs as well. If you live near Water Tank Road in the Pelion area and spot her/them, please call the shelter (803)-739-9333.
